Over the Easter Break there will be no formal homework as we have covered all topics (except shape within mathematics).
Pupils will have brought home previous tests that they have sat. They should revise from these, realizing mistakes that are easily correctable.
I would like to direct you to the ‘useful links’ part of our school website. On here there are plenty of appropriate and useful revision aids.
We are only a handful of school weeks away from the SATs, of which one of those weeks the children are away on a residential. I cannot stress enough the importance of these coming days. The children need to revise over the two-week break.
Along with previous SATs papers, the children should continue to use our educational apps:
• Times Table Rockstars
• Spelling Shed
• Prodigy Maths
There will be prizes for participation in these apps.
Through the use of the previous SATs papers, and these apps, it will help you to identify your child’s weak areas and help them to achieve the best possible results that they can.
Thank you for your support,
This week we have used our washing lines to full effect, ready to write next week! Using LiteracyShed’s ‘Alma’ as a stimulus. Can’t wait to see what our class write, some brilliant openings and drafts so far.
You can download a list of next week’s spellings by following the link below.0 Comments
|| Varjak Paw || Varjak Paw is an amazing book if you like tension and adventure stories. The first Varjak book is basically him discovering the land outside of the house.The eldest cat told him to go outside and discover.What he saw was cat gangs, enormous dogs and things he had never seen before.Compared to the other cats,he was different, he had different coloured eyes than his family and friends, that’s what made him special.I would definitely recommend this book to people who love surprises, because there is a lot in there.
|| Varjak Paw Outlaw || Varjak Paw Outlaw is a wonderful book if you like to read about long journeys. The second Varjak book is basically him trying to learn about the land, he doesn’t know much about the lands before his friends started helping him.This book is kind of like the first one however, he has friends now that helped him discover the land that the people lived in.At the end of this book it describes everything perfectly and gave lots of adjectives. Compared to the other book this one described the surroundings more.I have no favourites out of these two books if you want to read them, don’t just read one of the books I would suggest read both or you won’t understand the story.5 Comments
The spellings from previous SATS papers have been added to your lists. Why not have a go at them over the next few weeks?

Today we created our own narratives. This was a cold task, it gave the class a chance to show the teachers what they already knew about writing a narrative.
Some of the class have asked to continue their work on our blog.
I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.
Whatever I see I swallow immediately
Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike.
I am not cruel, only truthful-
The eye of the little god, four cornered.
Most of the time I meditate on the opposite wall.
It is pink, with speckles. I have looked at it so long
I think it is a part of my heart. But it flickers.
Faces and darkness separate us over and over.
Now I am a lake. A woman bends over me,
Searching my reaches for what she really is.
Then she turns to those liars, the candles or the moon.
I see her back, and reflect it faithfully.
She rewards me with tears and an agitation of hands.
I am important to her. She comes and goes.
Each morning it is her face that replaces the darkness.
In me she has drowned a young girl, and in me an old woman
Rises toward her day after day, like a terrible fish.
